Overall my day to day dealings with this estate agent were fine, if not perfect. However there seems to be a real lack of communication within the office. My partner and I requested an additional week be added on to our 12month tenancy approximately 6 weeks before we moved out, which was approved. We called again 2 weeks before moving out to confirm that this was Ok and the person we were dealing with didn't seem to have any recollection of this but also agreed, stating that we would be charged ...

I have nothing but good things to say about Mcgeown estate agents, and in particular, Tim Luft. Mcgeown's have sold two houses for me in the last 18 months, they got the sale of the second house because I had been so impressed with how they (in particular Tim Luft) sold the first house on the Lisburn Road in Belfast. The second house was in Stranmillis and once again, I was very pleased with how Tim Luft conducted the process. There was a major hiccup in the sale because a buyer dropped out at...

I recently moved to Belfast from London which has been a big move in itself. We found a house we liked and put in an offer. Danny looked after us very well and his communication through out was excellent. We then had major issues with the solicitors which was no fault of the estate agents. Once again I found Danny to be very professional and very helpful. At one point I was speaking to him on a daily basis about the house and always got back to me very promptly. I found all the staff at McGeowns...

We recently bought our first house through McGeowns. We found the pre sale process straightforward with the agent keeping us posted at all times. We found Tim to be straightforward and honest and quickly settled on a price with the vendor. Through the conveyancing Tim made sure the process kept moving and all in it was as hassle free, courteous and honest throughout as we could have wished for. At no time did we feel we were being put under undue pressure as we had with other agents which had re...

I was a tenant in a property that was in part managed by McGeowns, though our daily dealings were all done through the landlord, McGeowns processed our application and held our deposits. Initially, there were never any problems with them. I always found them professional and punctual. This became a very different story when we vacated the house and requested our deposits back. We left the house as we found it, clean and tidy, and the itinerary confirmed everything was there and the landlord was...

I'm the mother of the tennant and we have had an absolute nightmare trying g to get a security deposit back from this agent. My husband, daughter and I have spoken to practice ally every member of staff who never k ow what the situation is and tell us a different story every time. Today's latest is that they paid a much reduced deposit into A bank account - sadly NOT my daughters, but her flatmate!! I've never come across such incompetence and downright unprofessional behaviourin my life. They ...

As a student I have dealt with a few landlords in Belfast and have always had positive things to say about them and I treat properties I rent well and clean every other day to keep them in good condition for the landlord. I would pay my rent three months in advance every time and the last two times I did they hounded me and my flatmates in the third month and complained that I didn't pay my rent. This would be passed around different staff memebers, they always said they would contact me back an...

I arranged a viewing with McGeowns and was showed around a property on the Lisburn Road. The property did not suit and Paul took the time to find out my requirements and recommend other suitable properties in the area. I was not able to view that day as 24 hours notice was required to current tenants. In the end I found my ideal home and proceeded with an application. Sinead talked me though the whole application process which took 3 -4 days to complete. I am now in my new home and very hap...

Very Dissappointing, Poor Communication, I had to constantly chase for updates, they made a lot of assumptions instead of doing basic due dilligence. They didn't follow things through and left a lot of loose ends and unanswered questions... All in all a pretty awful service... Avoid, there are much better options......

Good Afternoon I have read your review that has been posted on our website. I am very curious to know what property this was regarding and the staff member. As an agent we always endeavour to make the sale process from start to finish a smooth one. You can understand our disappointment to read this. If you would be good enough to supply the information we can then deal with the matter. Regards McGeown Estate Agents.....

Excellent experience with McGeown's it was my first time letting a property so it was all pretty new to me. I called in off the street when I first started looking. The Lady at reception was very helpful and booked me in for several viewings for the next day as they stated they needed to give 24 hours notice to current tenants I found this interested for tenants. Within 24 hours I had my new place lined up. Really happy with the over all experience and would highly recommend them....

So wish I had read these reviews about this agent before I gave any money to them. Yes I am another tenant who is now waiting 2 months for my deposit back. McGeowns are a joke and no one should ever do business with them..... They have no excuse for not returning by deposit and now I am seeking legal advice. So be warned and STAY CLEAR. I would love a reply, but I am sure it would just be that the accountant is not in the office!!!! JOKE....

A common theme but absolute worst estate agents ever. The accountant isn\'t in today/ the accountant will be back later this afternoon all common excuses. Property dirty when moved in, spotlessly left, said deposit would be returned however still no deposit. Absolute thieves- way are these people still allowed to operate in the industry?? Stay away!!! I love how the estate agent chooses not to reply to any comments re deposits not being returned.... Go on reply I dare you!!...

Tried to arrange a viewing after 6pm I was only in NI overnight. As I work for an Airline I had a minimum rest nightstop in Belfast arriving at 1720 & departing early the next morning at 0740. Agent was not at all accommodating & I consider this to be exceptionally bad customer service. If I were a client selling a property through this agent I would be really unhappy at loosing a potential cah buyer....

The experience we\'ve had with McGeowns Estate agents is absolutely atrocious. This ranged from a number of problems we had throughout the tenancy, to getting our deposits back after we had moved out. To begin, when we moved in, the house was filthy. We had to scrub it ourselves to get it clean, which I wouldn\'t have minded if they hadn\'t called us after we moved out to say the house was in no fit state to be rented out again and we\'d need to go back and clean it. Then through out the...

They could have been more helpful throughout our tenancy, instead of fobbing us off and making us wait. Mold on walls in a house with two out of three residents having asthma is not good, and the fact that they didn\'t seem to care was concerning.

I wish I was one of the fortunate ones who only had to wait a month for their deposit. It took McGeowns 3 months to work mine through their accounts. Furthermore I am still waiting for the remaining £50 I am owed- FIVE months and almost two weeks later. Have found them to be the most unprofessional, lazy and infuriating people that I\'ve ever dealt with. A quick rundown of my *most recent* problems with McGeowns: * They have read me the exact same script each one of the 14 times I...

Before I moved in, on the viewing day I noticed the mildew in the toiled so I pointed that to the agent and I was immediately reassured that it will be removed before I move in, also the carpets was not hovered (You could see lumps of dust in the corners) and there was litter in the bedroom . Another problem was the oven- it broke 1 month before I left the property and during that month a technician has come 3 times and tried to repair the oven but without a success. 1 month after I moved out of...

Daniel McGeown are a woeful estate agent. I rented an house from them for 1 year while at University and had nothing but problems and hassle with them. Firstly, when I moved in the house was a mess. There was cigarette ash inside the drawers of the bedside table. The garden was overgrown and broken bits of furniture/doors, obviously when we viewed this was not the case. I assume Daniel McGeown took the deposits for the previous tenants but didn't use the money to repair the damage. Anyway...

I see an emerging theme that these guys are rubbish at returning deposits and try their best to keep what of it they can. Do not use this agent! I moved out in December and now in March I still have no deposit. The stalling continues with the latest issue is I left our bin in the alleyway as most tenants do and now I am waiting for them to receive a quote or some line to this effect from the council for a new bin ( I'm guessing if they looked in the alley (I no longer have access) they might fin...

Theres always two sides to every story and then theres the truth never let the truth get in the way of a good story ? Its ironic that you say McGeown Estate Agents are rubbish for charging you for a missing wheelie bin ? I assume that when you rented the house you didnt have to look in the alleyway for the bin ? If properties are returned in the same condition that they were let in and all the fixtures and fittings accounted for it would make it much easier for us to return the deposit ?....
